On Sunday, during the Television Critics Association’s press tour, The CW president Mark Pedowitz officially announced that the network gave early renewals to seven of its returning series: Supernatural, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Arrow.
Stephen Amell and David Ramsey — two of the stars from the latter, which spawned The CW's DC superhero shared universe — posed for a photo in which they held up three fingers on each of their hands to celebrate Arrow being renewed for a sixth season.
"We are so lucky. Six seasons... Six!!" Amell exclaimed on Facebook. "I'd like to thank WB, the CW, our unmatched Crew, the cast, the producers and most of all, the fans. We are still here because of you. We have a chance to get to 200 episodes, because of you. I have the job of my dreams, because of you. Thank you. A thousand times... thank you."
OLIVER WANTS JUSTICE; FELICITY WANTS REVENGE — Worried that Prometheus is right and he is truly a killer at heart, Oliver (Stephen Amell) looks for any ray of hope and finds it in what seems to be the miraculous return of Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy).
However, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), still reeling from Detective Malone’s murder, is bent on revenge – she wants to stop Prometheus at any cost. While in prison, Diggle (David Ramsey) fights for his life.
Gregory Smith directed the episode written by Ben Sokolowski & Brian Ford Sullivan.
